It was a week to remember for Team Canada, presented by Sobeys at the 2023 Billie Jean King Cup Finals in Seville, Spain, concluding with yet another piece of Canadian tennis history being written.

Led by captain Heidi El Tabakh, Eugenie Bouchard, Gabriela Dabrowski, Leylah Annie Fernandez, Rebecca Marino, and Marina Stakusic defeated Spain, Poland, Czechia, and Italy en route to being crowned world champions for the first time in remarkable fashion despite being underdogs in many of the matchups they were faced with.

Before capturing this prestigious team title in 2023, Canada’s best result at the Billie Jean King Cup came in 1988 when Helen Kelesi, Jill Hetherington, and Rene Simpson broke new ground for their country by reaching the semifinals.

2024 FINALS format

The 2024 Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge Finals will take place at La Cartuja Stadium in Seville, Spain from November 12-20. This year’s event will see the introduction of a revised format, replacing the round robin group stage with a knockout competition, similar to the Davis Cup Final 8.
